From USA Weightlifting…

“One factor that we can never emphasize enough is that weightlifting training contains an amazing secret. The secret is that lifting light weights at the outset of training not only facilitates the development of sound technique, but the use of light weights at the outset also maximizes the development of strength and power.”

More isn’t always better! Fine tune that technique with lighter weight.

REMINDER: Mobility at 6:30 PM tonight. Joe, a Physical Therapist and CrossFit Coach, will be leading. If you haven’t been to one of these sessions, you are missing out!
